The following note was provided by BODC: The pressure record
shows that the mooring suffered knockdown on several occasions
throughout the deployment. The most severe occured from 21 to
22 May and from 9 to 10 June, and reached an order of 150m and
300m respectively. The meter at 1055m depth on this mooring
shows current speeds reaching 100 and 120 cm/sec during these
periods. The data processing laboratory's comment on this
knockdown is that the mooring may have been caught by a trawler
and moved a small distance.

Our comment: This is one of four current meter records from the
same mooring (the other three are Accessions 511, 512, and 513).
The pressure record from this instrument indicates that during
the anomalous event of 9 - 11 June the mooring became shallower
by about 25 meters. Although we have made no attempt to clean up
these four records, they do contain some episodes of tainted
data. These records should be used with circumspection.

Move up one level.
